GSS Mini School

As the Director of Graduate Student Society, at Simon Fraser University, I am very excited to be working on the project “GSS Mini School”. The mini school offers 1 to 2 hour, free workshops to all graduate students as a perfect energy booster for reducing anxiety, enhancing emotional wellbeing and finding much-needed relief from the general stress inherent to studying at a university. Our goal is to increase graduate student engagement one workshop at a time. Some of the workshops and events we will be offering are:

  • nature walks
  • learn to knit at the graduate student lounge
  • discover how to make healthy, delicious desserts
  • enjoy a free movie night with salad and pizza
  • Networking mingles that help increase engagement with fellow students

Imagination and Education

I have been invited to speak and facilitate a workshop at the 10TH International Conference on Imagination and Education on July 2nd to July 4th, at Simon Fraser University, downtown campus. The workshop I am facilitating is on how to go from Stuck to Unstoppable in Education. In this workshop conference participants will discover how to:

  • build a growth mindset culture in classrooms
  • change student’s thinking about success and performance to manifest positive change
  • collapse disempowering behaviors and habits to improve a student’s productivity and enhance their performance
